The word Chakra means spinning wheel. Yogic meaning of this word is “Vortex” or “Whirlpool”.
There are seven important chakras, each associated with a different part of the body along the spine from the perineum to the crown of your head. Each chakra is associated with a particular body location(nerve plexus), a color, a central emotional/behavioral issue, as well as many other personal aspects including identity, goals, rights, needs, behavioral characteristics etc.
First of all, Do you know how many times you breathe per day? 21,600 times. That’s approximately 15 breaths per minute.
But before getting into enlightenment part, Why 108? What is the significance of 108?
108 is a powerful number used across all traditions and cultures across civilizations. You will see it everywhere, on a mala (rosary beads, rudraksh) or set of mantra counting beads.
Sit in comfortable place,
Gently close your eyes,
Know that you are breathing.
Here, I am not asking you for deep breathing or forcing your breathing or asking you to feel special or thinking whether you are doing it right or not.
Just a plain awareness of breath moving in and out.
Some use mantra or syllable to hold on to the awareness in the initial stages of practice. You can mentally say the word “So” when the air flows in and “Ham” when the air flows out. I am not asking you to breathe in and out. It is happening on its own. Just become aware of it.
Breathing and knowing that you are breathing is one of simple & powerful meditation technique.
Here is a simple video on So-Ham Breath Awareness Meditation.
I successfully overcame my morning urge to prepare my own coffee. I developed my ability to wait for one hour for the 1st sip of coffee prepared by my mom. I practice the following meditation below. You can also practice this with your tea or coffee.
Breathe In – I am aware that I am sitting on my chair
Breathe Out – I enjoy sitting
Breathe In – I am aware of my whole body
Breathe Out – I smile to my whole body
Breathe In – I feel how my hands are holding the coffee tumbler (cup)
Breathe Out – I feel the warmth of the tumbler in my hands
Breathe In – I am aware of how my hands bring the tumbler towards my mouth
Breathe Out – I enjoy the smell of the coffee (freshly filtered decoction coffee)
The first one hour of the day determines your day, week, year & life. Here is a simple template I had personally practiced during my earlier part of my life. Good template for beginners.
If you do not have one hour, then accordingly modify the template. You can add or drop and customize according to your lifestyle. There is nothing called right or wrong.
“Do you have patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself? – Lao Tzu
Are you simply moving through your day, without fully living?
I did this for many years. It was as if life were just passing by, and I was waiting for something to happen. I always felt like I was preparing for something later.
But today isnt preparation for tomorrow. Todays the main event.
How can you bring calm and peace to the middle of a stress-ful, chaotic day?
My education transformed me superficially, made me civilized,
My meditation transformed me deeply, made me realized.

My meditation gave me golden moments.
My education gave me job eligibility,
My meditation gave me life flexibility.
